Applied for the graduation

Lately I only get time @ weekends when I write 2-3 posts at one time. I think I might start writing advanced posts, i.e. i’ll write the articles on weekends but they’ll publish after 2-3 days. But on the other hand, blogging is about the feelis of Da Moment, so I might not do so.

Life has been going chaotic since 3rd Jan. Not necessarily in a bad way, but had been busy. Winter qtr. started on Monday, there were some issues with the course reg. site, so I had to goto their office n do blah blah. I am taking 28 units this qtr. (dat is 7 classes), for those who have exp. qtr sys. would know how much work load is that :|. But I just wanna get rid of studies. In order to get rid of studies, I filed for my graduation in Spring 2k5 today. There are too many code req. :(( Some of the courses am taking this qtr. r Anthropolgy 😐 , Philosophy (Critical Thinking) 😐 , Art 😐 (as in drawing), Women Studies 😐 (no, they don’t teach how to study women), International Studies – it kinda seems like interesting, it is about Globalization – we have to study both, for and against opinions. (did u notice “kinda seems like”?) We will also discuss about WTO n etc also we have 2 write a paper on a subtopic @ Globalization – I can choose the globalization n its cultural effects (a.k.a MMS kand) As far as I remmember, I last studied drawing in 8th class? Hopefully I’ll graduate by spring (jaan chutegi).

Some random stuff:

Watched Aish on 60 Minutes and here r my views –

{Anti Aish Mode}
….& she was faking that accent, didn’t even answer any question properly & yeah, “I’m real” was…..errrrrr…simply dumb
{/Anti Aish Mode}

{Fragment of Imagination}
How someone told her one fine sunny day – Ohhhhhhhhh Aishwarya, you are so real, aaaawwww.
{/Fragment of Imagination}

Was it sallu, when she was yelling at him?

{To be Noted}
But she is the one who got featured along with the Google Billionare and also got searched so many times @ Yahoo and had her pic @ Yahoo’s homepage.

Updated: Aish is also @ Zeitgeist.
{/To be Noted}

One thing good she said was that a person’s independence is independent of the fact that he lives with his/her parents or not – ofcourse she didn’t use these cool words, they r my creation, but she said something on these lines.

There are a lot of random stuff, which I can’t squeeze in this post, so I’ll just put them up here so that I can write a post on each whenever I get time

– Tsunami Aid {Indonesia} politix
– California Garib.
– Indian police wale and technology (article was /.ed)

For now….here is a fwd. sent by Param, one of my friends. Its not funny but interesting and some inspiration to Aaina

A winner is NOT one who NEVER FAILS, but one who NEVER QUITS! . read on..

A candidate for a news broadcasters post was rejected by officials

Since his voice was not fit for a news broadcaster.

He was also told that with his obnoxiously long name, he would never Be
famous.

He is Amitabh Bachan.

——————————————-

A small boy – the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father, was

selling newspapers in a small village to earn his living.

He was not exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by

religion and rockets. The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he

built crashed multiple times and he was made a

butt of ridicule.

He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey of India

single-handedly – Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.

——————————————–

In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition

for the executives of the Decca recording Company.

The executives were not impressed.

While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, “We

don’t like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out.”

The group was called The Beatles.

——————————————–

In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modeling

Agency told modeling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, “You’d better learn

secretarial work or else get married.” She went on and became Marilyn

Monroe.

——————————————–

In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a singer

after one performance.

He told him, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere….son. You ought to go back

To drivin’ a truck.”

He went on to become Elvis Presley.

——————————————-

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did

not

ring off the hook with calls from potential backers.

After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said,

“That’s an amazing invention, but who would ever want to see one of

them?”

——————————————-

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000

experiments before he got it to work.

A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times.

He said, “I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just

happened to be a 2000-step process.”

——————————————-

In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his

Idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country.

They all turned him down.

In 1947, after 7 long years of rejections, he finally got a tiny

Company in Rochester, NY, the Haloid company, to purchase the rights to his

invention — an electrostatic paper-copying process. Haloid became Xerox

Corporation.

——————————————

A little girl – the 20th of 22 children, was born prematurely and

Her survival was doubtful.

When she was 4 years old, she contracted double pneumonia and

scarlet

fever, which left her with a paralysed left leg.

At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on

And began to walk without it.

By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk, which doctors said was a

miracle.

That same year she decided to become a runner.

She entered a race and came in last.

For the next few years every race she entered, she came in last.

Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on running.

One day she actually won a race. And then another.

From then on she won every race she entered.

Eventually this little girl – Wilma Rudolph, went on to win three

Olympic gold medals.

—————————————-

A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying attention to his

mathematics and for not being able to solve simple problems.

She told him that you would not become anybody in life.

The boy was Albert Einstein.
